Strange Sights in KW as CAFKA art exhibition goes public

KITCHENER, ON, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - The best in Canadian contemporary art takes to the streets of Waterloo Region this week as CAFKA's 8th biennial international public art exhibition kicks off Friday, September 16.

CAFKA.11: SURVIVE.RESIST. presents 20 artworks designed to turn heads on the streets and in the parks of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge. With a bronze dumpster, a wilted lamp post, crowd control barriers strewn as if by a tornado, and an artist painting the Iron Horse Trail with a bicycle, CAFKA's exhibition brings art to the people.

CAFKA.11: SURVIVE. RESIST. runs September 16 to October 2, 2011.

The Contemporary Art Forum, Kitchener and Area, is an artist-run non-profit collective devoted to putting art in public spaces.
